Keeping the Home Fires Burning...

...costs more than it used to!

This photo shows Daughter's new hearth.
That's the very first fire ever in her blueblack Jotul woodstove
upon her new hearth, which she designed herself.
Hubby and I were there while the mason completed the work.

Here in Vermont, yesterday, our propane guy filled our tank again.
We have now received nearly all the fuel we pre-paid for this year.
Since we have very little revenues for more
we are being extra careful to wear slippers and sweaters
and keep the stove off most of the day when possible.

For the last three months our home business
has been running at 25% its usual capacity.
Our business is dependent on new product startups.
We were probably among the first to feel the downturn in the economy,
and we may be among the first to feel it picking up.
So far so good anyway. Stay tuned.

I spoke too soon, Renee.   And I can't see any of my posts of the last hour.  ~ listener



Once again, Haloscan appears to be broken. Go ahead and use Blogger commenting for now.

7:15pm:  Renee, I was able to get in fine.  Perhaps it's fixed?  ♥  ~ listener

Question of the day

If you could spend a day just hanging out (as a welcome companion) with any person in history--or any famous person of the present time--who would it be?
